I was trying to make the type turns italic/oblique style or bold when hover on the site title or menu links, but there's not a default option for it. It would be great to have the option of choosing a different type –style or even family– to get some cool effects.
I guess it can be done by using custom CSS, but it would be a good default option at Customize. Right now you can only play with color, opacity or stroke.
Here's an example when hover on the menu titles: http://www.portikus.de
Hope it sounds good. Thanks!
